[09:41:16] <Apsup> Morning!
[09:44:40] <Bronz|work> Hi Apsup!
[12:18:41] -!- Aria [Aria!Aria@hide-57D02771.agg2.bdt.bdt-fng.eircom.net] has joined #geeknights
[12:18:45] <Aria> Hi
[12:20:36] <Bronz|work> Hello!
[12:20:46] <Aria> There's a humble multiplayer bundle
[12:20:53] <Aria> But it's not good
[12:21:07] <Aria> It has Tricky Towers and Ultimate Chicken Horse
[12:21:10] <Aria> But that's it
[12:21:17] <Aria> Also Helldivers, but don't buy that
[12:21:27] <Bronz|work> "The requested web site is categorized as Games by Blue Coat WebPulse."
[12:21:30] <Bronz|work> =(
[12:22:30] <Aria> Oh noes
[12:22:35] <Aria> But wait a minute--
[12:22:50] <Aria> Oh I was gonna say you can't play any games there, only buy
[12:23:02] <Aria> But actually, they have neogeo games in browser
[12:23:26] <Bronz|work> It's not very work related still.
[12:46:47] <Apsup> There is muncipality representative election coming here soon. I decided to look up a list of candidates, and noticed that one of the political parties had bought google ad, that gives their site with only their candidates as first result of such search.
[12:47:16] <Apsup> That felt kinda dirty.
[12:47:47] <Aria> Vote for someone else
[12:47:53] <Apsup> I probably will.
[12:49:08] <Apsup> There are usually online quizz type things that give you candidates that are closest to your answers. I then look at the top of the list and chose those that wrote extra arguments for their answers and had good ones.
[12:52:51] <Bronz|work> The online quizes are sometimes problematic too though
[12:53:08] <Bronz|work> I know that the most popular one was actually biased.
[12:53:29] <Apsup> Sure they are not perfect, but at least it's a tool. It's not like I'm going to go and study all of the hunders of people.
[12:53:40] <Apsup> Of course I could be a lazy and just vote for my friends.
[12:53:43] <Apsup> *friend
[12:53:47] <Apsup> only one vote
[13:11:50] <Bronz|work> Well, does your friend have sound political ideas?
[13:12:31] <Aria> Reduce spending, free weed.
[13:12:55] <Apsup> Depends on the friend. I have multiple who are in politics. Also weed is not something that gets decided on muncipality level.
[13:13:23] <Aria> Surely they have the power to buy things and then give it out for free
[13:13:24] <Bronz|work> Which one of your friends promises more round-abouts?
[13:13:31] <Bronz|work> Because those are pretty good.
[13:14:34] <Apsup> Weed being illegal, kinda makes it so that giving it out for free is kinda problematic for politican to promise.
[13:14:50] <Bronz|work> Illegal!
[13:14:58] <Bronz|work> I thought you lived in a FREE nation
[13:15:16] <Aria> So um..
[13:15:30] <Aria> My joke was that young people make poor politicians
[13:15:32] <Apsup> No no no. I live in communist sosialist nation, which is pretty much the opposite of free.
[13:15:38] <Aria> And possibly are stoners
[13:15:57] <Apsup> Old people can be poor politicians also.
[13:16:11] <Apsup> As long as they are not straight out of high school, I think it's fine.
[13:16:52] <Aria> Yes-- what I'm trying to say is, don't over analyse it
[13:18:22] <Apsup> I never do, in the end. As long as I don't vote for some openly racist asshat, I'm fine.
[13:19:02] <Aria> God damnit, over analyse, or at least analyse who to vote for. Don't overanalyse my shitty joke!
[13:19:15] <Bronz|work> On the municipality, it doesn't matter super much what their policies are exactly, and more if they're competent.
[13:19:32] <Bronz|work> And honestly, that's very difficult to judge.
[13:19:38] <Aria> Well you probably still don't want the super racist guy
[13:20:43] <Apsup> Well, even on that level there are important decisions on things like education and public healthcare. Also I feel that at that level the individual can affect more than in the parlament, where they just vote what the party leaders tell them to vote.
[13:21:25] <Apsup> In the parlament election my frist priority is just focus on the party, because that's the thing that really matters there.
[13:42:28] <Aria> This talk is very boring, but its on a subject I care about, so I feel bad leaving after 10m
[13:50:30] <Bronz|work> ... you mean the GDC talk, right?
[13:50:37] <Bronz|work> Not like, the converstaion we were having a moment ago?
[13:59:11] <Aria> No GDC Talk
[13:59:28] <Aria> I'm listening to another one, that is an ad for Substance Painter
[13:59:54] <Aria> I should learn to stop clicking on the ads
[14:02:22] <Aria> Also it's not a very good ad. "Substance painter prints garbage to its files, so you might have all your work be wasted after six months. Luckily the files are just XML files, so if you open them with this hacky way, and then look for the garbage, you can just remove that in notepad, save it, and then continue working from where you were, minus the one material you had to delete! Isn't that wonderful?"
[14:04:16] <Aria> Also Uncharted 4 had 10 companies working on it
[14:04:54] <Aria> Not including Naughty Dog, 10 outsourced game shops
